Parmesan-Roasted Butternut Squash & Potatoes

October 28, 2010

Author Notes:

The Parmesan coats the potatoes and squash and transforms this side dish from simple to euphoria-inducing. OK, it remains simple, but still. Honestly, for me it even transforms it from side dish to main. Just add a side salad.
